    Cops need to stop acting surprised when they're assumed to be pigs. Maybe they're good cops, definitely a possibility, but if they're pigs the assumption that they're good will get someone killed. Better safe than sorry.

    He was calm due to his training. I wonder how it would have turned out for any other person who is civilian who does not know how to handle a situation like that with a calm manner.

    Better title: Police officer fired for pepper spraying lieutenant. Shove race into everything and you see racism everywhere when there isn’t racism everywhere. At the end of the day the dude didn’t listen to instructions so he’s at fault here. Just another time of listen to instructions and nothing would happen but disobey instructions and pay the consequences.

    “I’m honestly afraid to get out-“ “Yeah, you should be.” Hey, officer, broski, I don’t think saying that is going to coax him out. Pointing a gun at someone and then exclaiming how they SHOULD be scared to comply with your orders doesn’t seem like the best way to get someone to comply with your orders.
